Try a mixture of the 70’s powerful vocals, 80’s mean guitar riffs and the heavy groove from the 90’s and 2000’s. Now put it all together with a contemporary look. After all, rock n roll has never been dead, so why not mix everything?Well, this is Electric Mob. Coming from Curitiba (Brazil), the band was formed in 2016 by Renan Zonta (vocals), Ben Hur Auwarter (guitar), Yuri Elero(bass) and André Leister (drums) and surprises for the explosive sound and performance. The result feels like a sonic punch in the face, mixing a heavy sound with its own groove.
After Renan Zonta’s outstanding participation in the reality show “The Voice Brazil”, the band released their first studio work with 4 tracks. The EP “Leave A Scar” (2017) had great reviews and established the band as one of the most promising rock n roll bands in the country. In 2019 the band signed a multi-album deal with Frontiers Music. The label classifies the band as “one of rock’s most exciting and promising newcomers in years”.
“Discharge”, the debut album of the band, was released on July 12th of 2020. In less than one week the album already had more than 800 thousands streams on Spotify, together with the previously released singles. Such a sudden rise in the streaming giant resulted in the band being figured two times as cover of the main Hard Rack playlist and feature in dozen editorial playlists of the platform. The band also figured the cover of TIDAL’s main hard rock and metal playlist and had songs added to several editorial playlists on Deezer and Apple Music.
